Today’s Action: Tell your Senators to demand witnesses at Trump’s trial

Now that Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi has transmitted the two impeachment articles to the Senate, Trump’s trial is expected to begin next week. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-KY) goal is clear: limit the procedure in order to frame Trump in the best possible light for a brisk acquittal.

But we have something else in mind: transparency and the truth. This trial MUST include the key witnesses that Trump blocked from testifying before the House since exposing the truth of his crimes is dangerous for his presidency (and his ego).

Call or email your Senators and demand they vote to include new witnesses in Trump’s upcoming impeachment trial. Have an extra ten minutes to amplify your voice? Write a letter to your Senators, but send it to your local newspaper editor for publication!

It isn’t just Democrats who see the vital need to include witnesses in this otherwise sham of a trial. Senator Susan Collins (R-ME) says she wants to see the testimony of those Trump and McConnell want to silence and is fighting to make it happen. Republican Senator Mitt Romney also says he’s open to it. We only need four Republicans to join Democrats in voting for subpoena to bring a vital witness to Trump’s trial, and we’re half way there.

Transparency in our highest office in the land is so infinitely more important than so-called partisan politics. Our Senators have taken a vow to uphold the Constitution, and this includes conducting a fair and open impeachment trial. The phone call you make today could be the tipping point to gathering those simple-majority votes needed to subpoena those whom Trump and McConnell want to keep silenced.

Email or call (202.224.3121) your Senators and demand they support a fair and open impeachment trial by voting to include new witnesses. Make your opinion count even more by sending a letter to your local newspaper editor, calling out your Senators by name.
